Although I am musician at heart, I have recently completed a PhD that focused on the life and works of vibraphonist Milt Jackson, in which a cognitively informed music analysis of jazz and improvised musics is at the centre of attention. Aside history and cognition, my academic interests include popular music(s), cultural anthropology, music and migration, film music and topics in critical theory. I am also keen on writing for the public press; below you can find a list of selected publications in academic and public spheres.
